SSB: LIFE ITSELF 2011-2021
Vanitas really had to deal with this brat the entire time didn't he? Well that was what he got for signing up for a break in mission without caring about the consequences of his actions to come. At the music video comment Vanitas just rolled his eyes but due to being behind a mask no one could see him do that thankfully.
Finding himself in a blue hedgehog based room called Sonic, Vanitas just sighed in disgust as he entered the room. At the gagged woman being revealed he couldn't care less about her and decided to check out what exactly this mission was for as the brat Madotsuki had apparently found the thing they were after. "What do you got there twerp? Is that the item we were meant to retrieve?" he questioned her.
What was this place anyway? It was certainly larger than most of the areas he had been in the Life Sphere. It did make him wonder though, who would go out of the way to steal something that was clearly important to survival within walking distance of the police station? This didn't add up.
Normally Vanitas was the opposite of wanting to use his brain and was one to fight but this girl was starting to get on his nerves with how little information about the job she had given. Vanitas:
Entered the Sonic based room in disgust.
Confirming whether that the item she has is what they were after with Madotsuki.

Apparently, the little passageway that Axel had discovered was safe, and may he just say - thank goodness. He personally thought that he should have gone before Madotsuki did up the ladder to gauge its safety, but as long as it all ended well, he supposed that it was fine. In any case, once it was confirmed to be safe, he'd climb the ladder up with the rest of them, but the room at the top was... well, it was certainly a sight to see. "'Sonic-themed bedroom'? I dunno, this almost feels more like a shrine or something." This was definitely a lot to process.
He very wisely decides to leave the woman to her own devices - the option to try and take her down existed, but it was an unnecessary risk if she could alert the guards downstairs. Of course, soon after that, his attention's stolen by the sound of banging on a door - Madotsuki was already on that, though, unlocking the door after a failed attempt. And, that's... a tied-up person? Well, if nothing else, finding something like this validated their efforts, regardless of what the item in question turned out to be, really.
Madotsuki seemed to have her own priorities with a display case, and Dawn was... using nail clippers, which, A for effort, but Axel summons forth his own Keyblade to help undo what was binding the woman by gently cutting at the ropes.
Bubble Shield: 45%/45% Status: "Seriously, Mads...? It'll still be there in a few moments, could've untied her..."
Actions taken: 1. Up the ladder. 2. Help untie the woman.
Went the display case as Madotsuki took the item off of it and looked at it at all it's glory. A wide smirk appeared on Madotsuki's face as she finally got it. The item that the group were after, the reason this mission was made in the first place, and what was stolen from Madotsuki after she rightfully paid for it.
Only for that crazy lady that she ran into suddenly throwing her onto the ground and running off with the item in question.
And what is this item? That will supposedly help give the Life Sphere more electricity? Well, Madotsuki turned towards Vantias.
"Obviously." And raised up the item, it was...
A physical copy of NASU 3D, the game that was released at midnight that night.
"Okay, we got what we need. Let's ditch this place and go before we get caught." Madotsuki insisted to the group. She pointed to the hatch where the group had come out from.
However, it appears as though Axel and Dawn were facing other worries, mainly after they untied the woman that was tied up in the closet. "Oh, thank you!" The woman said. Once she was finally free from Axel and Dawn's efforts, her eyes glittering with water over her Pokemon trainer saviour and her Organisation XII saviour.
"I wouldn't of gotten out if you guys didn't find me first." The woman said, before happily introducing herself.
"Anyway, your all probably wondering why I was trapped in there."
"Anyway, my name is Sara. I used to live on a flying island known as South Island with my father, who was President of said island. My mom's dead because it's the same old, mom died before I grew up kind of crap. But anyway, we were celebrating an event in which a friend below the island, Sonic the Hedgehog and his adopted brother Miles Tails Prowler, oh, and another guy that was with them called Knuckles, defeated Doctor Robotnik, who was going to marry me so he can take over the island through diplomatic means!
He also had a robot with him that was similar to Sonic, but not quite. But anyway, the three of them managed to defeat Robotnik before leaving, but we ended up holding a celebration over the Island being at piece again...
And then I fell off the Island and ended up here while getting some cake. I don't want to explain how my quest for cake ended up causing me to fall off the Island, but here we are. I ended up on Li and ended up gaining ownership of this manor because a few people here were former servant and guards of the Island and thus managed to get this place for me over some princess from some stupid kingdom called Soleanna, who has some obsession with Sonic ironically." Sara continued to explain.
"Shortly after however, someone broke into this Manor and kidnapped me. She took me up into this weird Sonic room that I haven't even seen before and tied me up in that closet. It was a lady, who was strangely wearing a blonde wig and a pink apron dress, and she was humming---Just then, Sara heard said humming coming from the kitchen in the room where the group had seen the woman washing the dishes, and squealed in horror.
"EEP, it's her! It's the woman that kidnapped me, we have to get out of here!" Sara insisted to the group, now that the group had basically gotten the "item" that they were looking for, they were free to leave with Sara. As even if they did break into her house, they ended up rescuing her.
On the other hand, there's still the fact that the Woman that kidnapped her was still basically walking free, and she could very well just go and recapture Sara again should the group leave her, it was up to them about what they should do next.
Should they confront Sara's kidnapper or just get out of here before things get hectic?

Dawn kinda quirked a brow at the sight of the game. Did they come in here to steal a video game?? That was a whole 'nother level of... well, Nevermind that. Getting upset now would just cause problems. Regardless, listening to this strange girl's explanation of her own kidnapping made Dawn think. Or rather, it set off the voice in her head. (It sounds like this lady is really a problem...) (...Perhaps you would be doing the world a favor by getting rid of her.) (--I reaaaally don't like it when we talk about killing people.) (People do not kidnap other people to take good care of them, Dawn. Her future victims might consider death a mercy. You can put an end to that cycle of cruelty.) (...Yeah, I guess. Still, I don't know if I can handle doing something like that.)
Internally a bit conflicted, Dawn turns to address the rest of the party. “...Hey uh--guys? Do you think we should... stop this crazy kidnapper? Y'know, permanently?” she asked rather forwardly. She figured they were probably smart enough that they didn't need the situation explained to them. Everyone else was, right?
Upon seeing the game that the mission creator Madotsuki had unveiled it felt like something snapped within his mind. Vanitas was trying to be patient with Madotsuki through this whole ordeal but that right there was the last straw.
"Are you kidding me?! We broke into someone's house for a stupid video game?! What kind of idiot makes a mission to do that and lies about it being important for our survival?! I could give so much less of a crap about your reasons for this but you made it sound like it was super important!" At that point Vanitas did not care if anyone else overheard him yelling in this stealth mission.
Summoning his Void Gear Keyblade he was prepared to end Madotsuki's life. "It's too bad you will not be able to play said game before I kill you for your wild goose chase of a mission." But before he could even think of striking at Madotsuki, the other girl named Dawn actually had a good idea. Putting down his keyblade he would walk over to Dawn in a bit of a surprised mood.
"I couldn't agree more with you, here I thought you didn't have the guts for this kind of mission but you proved me wrong. Dawn was it? I need to kill something and luckily for our esteemed mission creator it won't be them. Give me something to kill and I'll forgive this brat's farce then spare her life."
Vanitas is definitely angry but luckily for Madotsuki or Vanitas, depending on what might have happened if he did strike at her, Vanitas's target changed to the kidnapper instead of Madotsuki. Whether that be a good or bad thing only time could tell.
Gets furious after finding out that Madotsuki's mission was only for a stupid video game.
In being furious he yells at her during said stealth mission, meaning anyone else could overhear him.
Summons his Void Gear Keyblade as he prepares to kill Madotsuki for this farce of a mission.
Before he even makes the first swing he overhears Dawn and actually compliments her on the idea then agrees to take out his anger on the kidnapper instead of Madotsuki.

...What to do. There was some merit in Vanitas being upset about this wild goose chase over a video game, for once, but even then, he's taking it too far. "Vanitas, seriously, shut up. I don't know if you missed it, but this is a stealth mission. No yelling." Honestly, most people don't tend to just immediately resort to murder. Of course, this was a real conundrum that they had been left with.
"Fortunately, it doesn't seem like Masky over here's left us with much of a choice." There was no way in hell that the woman in the other room hadn't heard Vanitas yelling, let's be real. "Granted, we need to take care of this somehow. A legal avenue's not really open to us unless you all want to take the fall for breaking in."
...He glances back at Dawn, though, with something of a concerned expression. Aren't you a little young to be throwing around murder as a viable solution? "...Just don't get used to this approach to things, any of you." He feels obligated to tack that on, as the current functioning adult. Honestly, if he could help it, he'd prefer to take care of his part on his own, but he knows that'd be foolish if she could call up her guards. "If we're going to run into her anyways, let's make sure that we can't talk this out somehow before resorting to violence."
Axel's pretty thankful for his Organization cloak, now - at least if she sees him, he'll be hard to identify, but that wasn't really the case for Dawn and Madotsuki, was it...? Ugh, what a pain... "Just take cover, Sara. This might get a little ugly."
Bubble Shield: 45%/45% Status: "No, seriously, what the hell, Dawn?"
A stupid video game!? It wasn't just a video game Madotsuki thought, and Vantias needed to know that. No, she needed to put him in his place as she held up her stolen cover for NASU 3d. "NASU 3D isn't just a stupid game, you wouldn't know unless you played it. But it's a ground breaking move from 2D to 3D and it has excellent story, strong characters, a beautiful scenery in game as well as a horror, thriller, action adventure, platforming, psychological, dramatic, depressing, puzzle, visual and sound novel, first, second third and fourth person, slice and dice type gameplay, as well as an online four, one hundred and eight player type multiplayer." Madotsuki continued to explain more about the game.
But then she saw that Vantias was willing to kill her for all the stuff that she had put the group through during the mission. "Oh I'm sorry, maybe you want to have a talk with my bodyguard!" Madotsuki held out her knife, she wasn't afraid to strike it against Vantias.
Fortunately however, Dawn, Sara and Axel had another idea on how to handle the mission, like stopping Sara's kidnapper who was in the kitchen, and it seems they were discussing killing her.
Which Madotsuki... Was on board with. If it meant ending the mission sooner so she can play her game that was rightfully hers.
"Ugh, we have to stop the lady from kidnapping her again. Fine, let's get this over with." Madotsuki then charged into the Kitchen.
"Hey Lady!" She pointed to the lady...
She removed the gloves that she was using to wash the dishes, as Sara looked from the door.
The Lady, slowly began to turn, about to reveal who she really is, to the ground, when Madotsuki charged towards her and uppercut her into the sink that was standing in front of, her face landed in the sink first, and before she could get out.
Madotsuki quickly put her hand in the sink and pulled out it's plug, which was seemingly strong enough to suck the woman down in the drain, despite the drain being the size of any other drain you would find in the kitchen sink.
"MMMM!" The woman would gurgle in the sink as she tried to get out of it.
But the Woman was now gone, her reign of terror ended as Madotsuki saw the now empty sink. "That's what you get for stealing my game." She said, before turning towards everyone else in the group, she walked back into the Sonic room that they were all in.
"I stopped the lady. No need to thank me, and we got what we need. Which means, we can now leave." Madotsuki said, but Sara was too happy that she had gotten rid of her kidnapper that she just had to reward the group.
"Wait, don't leave yet, I'm so happy that you've gotten rid of my kidnapper that I wish to reward you all. Come on, I'll take you back to my room so I can give you a reward!" Sara urged the group to follow her, Madotsuki sighed, but complied if it meant finding a quicker way to leave the Manor.
Her and Sara walked towards the locked door in the room, which Sara tried to lock pick. "Shouldn't we just use the hatch that we came in from?" She asked.
Just then, Sara had managed to unlock and open the door, leading to a rooftop like area. But there was two elevators at each end of the rooftop, which Sara and Madotsuki walked towards, regardless of the game.
"Yeah, but I like using the elevator." She said.
Meanwhile, if the rest of the group looked into the kitchen, they would see that a ring was now on the floor, if any of them knew their history, they would know that the ring used to belong to a member of the Soleanna Royal Family. But why did the woman have a ring like that? Did she stole it like how she stole NASU 3D and Sara?
"By the way." Sara said.
"What were you originally going to get in this mission anyway? I'm sure I can happily give it to you." She asked the group.
Apr 1, 2021 0:53:01 GMT -8 by Sunnivale: Added some more information about the mysterious woman.
So this was the woman who kidnapped that whiny princess like person in pink? Finally he could attack something for once! He was never fond of stealth so Vanitas was ready for her if she called any guards or did literally anything, what he was not ready for was what happened next. The brat Madotsuki pushed her into the sink and it just swallowed her up in an instant.
"Wow what a letdown. I was hoping for a fight." Vanitas said with a growl. He was still upset about this whole thing being a wild goose chase though for a stupid video game, he didn't care how good it was supposed to be for crying out loud. Well now this girl was safe and they could potentially collect a reward from her, hopefully one worth all this trouble.
"The brat over there made us believe that some sort of important item was in here, something that would be beneficial to the Life Sphere. It ended up being a stupid video game actually, but after all that trouble of rescuing you I want some sort of compensation for it as long as it is actually worth something." Vanitas scowled a bit under his mask as he said all that.
Actions taken: Let down after not getting to fight then demanding some compensation for the rescue that they did upon infiltrating the house for a game.

Placeholder for the voice in Dawn's head
“ . . . ”
( . . . )
Dawn watched the woman get sucked down the drain in stunned silence. Even the voice in her head was taken off-guard by that one. After the shock of what she saw passed, Dawn covered her mouth to poorly stifle a chuckle. It had reminded her of all the hilarious cartoon violence she watched on TV. “--Sick moves, Madotsuki!” she complimented in amusement, unsure if what she'd seen had been the work of the drain itself or Madotsuki. She decided to err on the latter. The thought that the woman may not survive that hadn't even occurred her. Her train of thought had been violently derailed by the imagery.
Dawn moved forward to check on the sink, only to feel something small impact her boot. She froze, her instinctive reaction to 'oops, I just made noise!' Her gaze trailed downward to see what she'd bumped with her foot, discovering a beautiful ring on the ground. She delicately picked it up, inspecting it closely. (...That ring has a royal insignia on it.) the voice in her head warned. (--Wait, really? How do you know that??) Dawn mentally replied, her brows furrowing. (I have watched the world from its shadow since before you were born. I know many things I should not.) the voice replied. Dawn thought about it for a bit more before deciding to keep the ring. If the woman did steal it, she bet that the owner would be happy to have it back.
Dawn then turned tail and rushed to catch up to the others following Sara. “What Vanny said. I don't know how a game is going to help the life sphere, but it sounds pretty fun.”
While Madotsuki was praised by Dawn for how she handled the situation, she glared at Vantias when he was disappointed that he wouldn't have fought the woman that kidnapped Sara. "Not all fights take long you know. Anyway, we got what we need, let's just get out of here." Madotsuki then stormed out into the kitchen and towards the outside of the room where Sara was.
It was still raining, heavily, but Madotsuki didn't know what time it actually was, not that she cared. The mission was almost over, now all they had to do was to take the elevator back to the Amber Room so Sara can reward them.
Speaking of which, as Sara approached an elevator at the edge of the roof, she answered Vantias question about the reward, as well as Dawn's comment about her not being sure how NASU 3D was going to help the Life Sphere.
"Huh, you want something that can improve the sphere? Well, I was given a electric generator by my father as a birthday gift, I haven't used it, but it should have better use for the Sphere instead, it's in my room. I'll go show you once we reach my living quarter's." Sara offered to the group as she reached the Elevator, which opened and her and Madotsuki stood inside to take cover from the rain again.
"Let's get moving already, I want to play this game as soon as possible. That woman better not have made a save file on this yet, or else I'm going to delete it." Madotsuki looked down at the cover for NASU 3D. It appears untouched, although Madotsuki would have to be the judge of that once she gets back to her Apartment.
Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, a loud crash was heard as someone kicked open the cupboard below the sink as a female figure rolled out of it. She was wet and breathing heavily as she stood up and clenched her golden gloved hands.
She wasn't done yet, she needed to stop that group from leaving. The woman quickly sped walked towards the cupboard and pulled out something that she can use to stop the group.
"Yes, this will do nicely." She said, as she laughed wickedly before grabbing a large axe and slamming the cupboard shut, before leaving the Kitchen to stop the group before they leave.
As the woman walked through the bedroom, carrying the axe and towards the door leading to the outside, she accidentally knocked out a sonic shaped oil can and a sonic lighter, which, combined with the plushies of Sonic, quickly sent the room ablaze as the woman continued to walk towards the door. The smoke quickly rising out from the room's windows and door that Sara unlocked. Madotsuki: 170/170
